    Julia O"Donnell grew up on a remote island off the northwest coast of Ireland, going barefoot as a child during the poverty-stricken 1920s. During her teenage years she picked potatoes and travelled to Scottish ports to gut fish. She married her beloved husband Francie, but his work was physically demanding and she found herself widowed and penniless with five children while still in her forties. She survived by knitting sweaters which were sold in America by relatives, until in an amazing twist of fate, her daughter Margaret and son Daniel became chart-topping singers and she found herself mingling with celebrities and royalty.
